Structural & Supramolecular Chemistry – About the Group

Research of the lab focuses on the structure-property relationships of supramolecular host-guest systems of cyclodextrins, the synthesis of designed cyclodextrin derivatives for nano- and bio- applications, on structure analysis of biological macromolecules and their complexes and on the development of crystallization methods for biological macromolecules. The laboratory has established numerous collaborations with research groups in Greece and abroad, many of which are realized in the frame of funded joint research projects. Moreover, the laboratory is committed to education and training of graduate students and post doctoral fellows in interdisciplinary research ranging from organic synthesis to structure determination by X-ray crystallography in the crystalline state and by NMR spectroscopy in solution.
